I believe in theory the idea of a burnt wasteland seems like a viable and fun option. But so far, after countless hours of playing, these places appear to be a wasted opportunity.
Unless the circle is there, alot of players avoid these places as much as possible once they are looted. They just aren't fun to play in - it's a dead forest afterall. The problem is, it takes up a HUGE space of the map which could have otherwise held buildings or better fun spots.
Please consider revamping or overhauling this area to make it more fun to play in.
I agree there's definitely wasted area on the map especially with this area... it maybe for a reason though to give them a good area for a map update in the future...

Agreed; there isn't enough loot in or near shattered forest, and the cliffs segment this part of the map too clinically.
Compared to the similarly open dunes around runoff/airfield/bunker, shattered forest is also much larger and overlooked on almost all sides.
I'd like to see that whole area revisited; relay/wetlands/shattered forest/hydro dam/two spines/swamps all need to flow more naturally into one another

I feel like this area would really benefit from natural persistent smoke coming from various points, similar to Bangalore's. Would really add an interesting dimension to this area!
Maybe some new underground caverns with some nice loot in too?
